CESAR is an image database that archives various objects related to the French theatre of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. The imagebank and database preserve artistic renderings or engravings of portraits, stage-sets, playbills, frontispieces, and much more. CESAR is premised on connectivity and collaboration. It is the aim of the resources to link students, scholars, and enthusiasts together. The extensive project "contents are freely available and it is hoped that scholars working on any aspect of Ancien Régime and Revolutionary theatre will help to make this resource even more comprehensive and as reliable as possible by contributing data, annotations and corrections and by offering support in developing the site".
